Factors That Affect Heating And Cooling

Every building is different, and has different heating and cooling needs. Nobody understands this better than the Tradesmen of New England, Hartford’s HVAC professionals. When designing and installing a building energy management system, we make sure that it will be capable of handling the needs of each unique facility to ensure optimum energy efficiency and cost effectiveness. Here are some of the factors we consider.


The amount of space contained within your building is one of the most influential factors when determining the necessary power output for your heating and cooling system. Naturally, changing the temperature of a higher volume of air requires more energy.

Walls & Rooms

The way that your indoor space is subdivided and partitioned off can affect the ductwork that is put in place in the floors, ceilings, and walls of each area. To ensure proper circulation, it is important to have the correct number and placement of vents and return registers.

Windows & Insulation

When maintaining a temperature difference between indoors and out, it is inevitable that some of that energy will escape. That’s why insulation is so important to minimize these losses. Since glass is a thermal conductor, large windows can make it much more difficult to maintain an indoor temperature. These energy losses must be taken into account when designing a building’s HVAC system.

Whatever shape or size your commercial facility might happen to be, you can count on the Tradesmen of New England to deliver a heating and cooling system that is perfectly suited for your Hartford business or organization. Contact us today to learn more!
